You have wisely chosen 2 good laptops of which the Asus is a very good budget laptop but deficient in some areas whereas the Sony is a truly excellent touchscreen laptop with a 3hr battery life for films and 4 hours web browsing, and has good sound quality as well, unusual for a laptop of this size. The screen res is quite low at 1366 x 768.

The CPU in the Sony is the i3-3227U. By the way the Sony is on offer here for only 445 and available in white as well. They will deliver via Parcelforce Worldwide to ROI in 1-3 days for 17.20 inc.

Ran out of editing time so just advising first link is erroneous and to say that the 3227U has hyper-threading but no turbo boost and was released 25th Jan 2013. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-C...r.87764.0.html
